Mt. Airy Nursery School is where strong foundations and fun lead to confidence and success!
We are a modified Montessori preschool program for children between the ages of 2½ and 5, located in Montrose, NY. We offer a multi-age classroom environment in which every child can explore the joy of learning and discovery. Our program stresses both individual learning and social development, focusing on confidence, cooperation, social skills, and FUN. In addition to the traditional preschool program of basic skills, art, music, and movement, we also offer beginning French. The foundation of our program is based in Montessori methods and educational materials for practical life, fine motor development, math and number concepts, science, geography, and age-appropriate literacy development. We were the only preschool in our area that provided a full range of distance learning programs beginning on the first day of the spring 2019 shut down of all schools and continuing through to the end of the school year. Our programs engaged our students multiple times a day and included videos across all subject areas, small group interactive show and tell sessions, birthday celebrations, parent-teacher conferences, special ed conferences, and a full scale drive through graduation for our students and their families.
